Biology Book  July 28, 2011

This textbook is very good about going in depth about Biology than any other book that I have read before and it also tends to put things in to easy to understand terms and gives good current examples that everyone these days can relate too. The shipping and receipt of this textbook was extremely fast. Item was in great condition. Looked brand new. I will order from here again.

Committed to Excellence.

This edition continues the evolution of Raven & Johnsonís Biology. The author team is committed to continually improving the text, keeping the student and learning foremost. We have integrated new pedagogical features to guide the student through the learning process. This latest edition of the text maintains the clear, accessible, and engaging writing style of past editions with the solid framework of pedagogy that highlights an emphasis on evolution and scientific inquiry that have made this a leading textbook for students majoring in biology. This emphasis on the organizing power of evolution is combined with an integration of the importance of cellular, molecular biology and genomics to offer our readers a text that is student friendly and current.

Our author team is committed to producing the best possible text for both student and faculty. The lead author, Kenneth Mason, University of Iowa, has taught majors biology at three different major public universities for more than fifteen years. Jonathan Losos, Harvard University, is at the cutting edge of evolutionary biology research, and Susan Singer, Carleton College, has been involved in science education policy issues on a national level.
